She can’t make you love her if you don’t.Americafinally fell out of love with Hollie Cavanagh and she was eliminated from this year’s ‘American Idol’. Here in the not so dark, in these final hours, the remaining three contestants got to embark upon their hometown visits while Hollie just got to go home.
There was a certain air of inevitability about Hollie’s departure last night. So her outpouring of grief at the news was shocking. She was crying so hard and the audience were cheering her so loudly that she entered the song late because she couldn’t hear the backing track.
But se handled herself with maturity and poise, going to ‘American Idol’ season 11′s Top 3, Joshua Ledet, Jessica Sanchez, and Phillip Phillips for a quick hug, then to the judges as she sang “I Got to Be Strong.”
Joshua was sobbing, but even Jessica and Phillip squeezed out a tear or two. But it was Hollie’s night and she handled it brilliantly. She may not be an ‘American Idol’ but she was a class act last night.
